As relegation places heat up, Al Riyadh can’t afford to slip up

Over the past two matches, Al Riyadh have performed admirably to secure impressive victories over Mahrez’s Al Ahli and a draw with Al Fateh. It was a great victory for them over Al Ahli to win the tie. While they have recently recovered from their poor form, staying on top of their game is key if they are to avoid relegation. 

Al Taawoun, on the other hand, have performed exceptionally and have a great chance of finishing the season in the top four. They are one point ahead of Al Ittihad in fourth and a strong finish to the season will help them finish in the top four. Their unbeaten run of six matches came to an end in the last match against Al Hilal. This match will see the team trying to regain their winning ways.

Joao Pedro (Al Taawoun)
